Evaluating an Integrated Approach to the Management of Cerebral Palsy. Appendix C: An Analysis of the Evaluation and Follow-up Data from the Institute for Movement Therapy in Budapest, Hungary. Volume IV of IV. Final Report.
Heal, Laird W.
The appendix analyzed evaluation and followup data from the Institute for Movement Therapy whose procedures the Integrated Management of Cerebral Palsy project attempted to replicate. Examined were data from over a 15 year period for 866 patients treated for a broad range of motoric disabilities. Data concerned independence in eating dressing, writing, change of place, speech comprehension and speech production, and manual dexterity in self-care motor tasks. Analyses showed that significant and lasting gains were made in all the areas during the time patients were at the Institute. Followup data showed significant regression only in the areas of eating, dressing and change of place, and significant improvement in writing. Data were presented in table format.
